Quote of the day No 315

Thursday 25 April 2019

The cabin is part of the boatwoman’s self-expression as well as her home; by its appearance and cleanliness she proclaims her self-respect and standing in the boat society, in the same way that a scrubbed front doorstep, polished door knocker, and clean lace curtains at the window are the outward signs of a respectable house in the town, signs to be read by the practised eyes of the neighbours. It is essential for any narrow boat to have the water can decorated, the brasswork polished and the fancy ropework scrubbed white; any standard lower than this suggests poverty and a lack of pride. Unique features of the boatwoman’s home are its size and close relationship with her husband’s job, and the way her standards have spread all over the boat to include the tools and practical equipment of canal boating.

A. J. Lewery -Narrow Boat Painting
